I loved Shane's performance! especially where he stripped down to his boxers! but as far as the movie it self goes, I was a little upset with King, and the Production Co. putting a gun in the hands of a child! VERY bad form! Socity has enough trouble with young and guns today, we DON'T need the Entertainment Medias glamourizing it!

I enjoyed all the scenes Shane was in, but I think the movie as a whole could have been much better!

Shane Haboucha is one of the best young actors and his performance in this movie was amazing. Sadly, the movie itself was not amazing. There were good parts but really I've seen better. But even in a not so great movie Shane Habouchas work was fabulous. He is truely amazing.

I really admired Shane Haboucha's work in this. He must have been 14 when the movie was shot and his voice hadn't yet changed, which, happily, suited the character he plays.

I rate the movie based on overall performances and the moviemakers best shot at creating an exciting show. I'm not much interested in Stephen King's theology. He is obviously incapable of imagining a creator less mean-spirited than he is himself.

I give it an 8 because it is an almost perfect adaptation of the novel - probably because Steven King wrote the screenplay himself. Shane does what his part allows him to do - David Carver as the main protagonist would have needed a bit more depth and emotional complexity as a character to live up to my image of the religious and handsome young lad I encountered in the novel.

The first half was quite good... suspenseful, and eerie. The second half was stupid and way over-the-top. Laughable at times and just dumb. Shane Haboucha did a good job but his character was a religious fruitcake that seriously needed a lobotomy.
